Avantgarde Acoustic - BASSHORN XD

BASSHORN XD

Why is the Basshorn a high end myth? Why is its nature of response so explosive, precise natural and pure? Why is any other bass technology – even the most elaborate conventional designs – so dramatically outperformed? Just look at it and you know why! The Trio with Basshorns probably is the most beautiful speaker from Avantgarde Acoustic™. But in respect to its holistic technology it is for sure the most perfect speaker system. Designed for people with an obsessive passion for music – from people who esteem the exceptional.
